Catch a wave
Fantastic family trip. This was our kids first experience white water rafting and they had a great time. Our guide was great at checking in with the kids to make sure they were feeling ok. The snack on the beach was a pleasant surprise. And we loved the personal touch of homemade cookies! I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Family Fun!
Jul 2021
We filled a boat with friends and family, 5 children aged 8-12 and 5 adults including grandpa. Kyle was patient with the the kids' million questions! There was a great balance of making sure the youngest were safe and had a fun first experience, while offering more adrenalin for the older ones such as swimming in class 2 rapids. Candle Falls was rugged and pretty and who doesn't love chips and cookies? We drank juice made from the river water- I wouldn't mind a heads up next time so I can decide if I'm okay with that! LOL. 3 other family members enjoyed the scenic float and also said the guide was great with their 6 year old. I would recommend IWE to families with children.

A must do! Adventure awaits!
So much fun! I was a little nervous but Kyle, Ben and Kyran were so amazing and put any nerves at ease. they were patient and understanding and I would book a tour with these guys again!
We were able to do a small hike in between rafting to a waterfall with a swimming hole - breathtaking!! It was so much fun and I felt invigorated after! I definitely will book again!

This trip had it all
Jul 2021
Jared and Elijah were the best rafting guides I've gone rafting with after experiences all over NAmerica. The river was beautiful and included seeing a huge osprey nest, granite caves, great stories and, of course, a good swim. And, really, is there any better icebreaker or reason for a good belly laugh than to have limbs tossed everywhere after a shouted "All Right" from the guide in response to a wave requiring extra weight on one side?

Amazing rafting
Omg what can I say. Just finished our first rafting trip ever called catch a wave. Guides were Maison, Shane and Chris. Im always worried theres gonna be this awkward silence of weirdness but these guys were fantastic. Talked and joked the whole trip. Even with 3 little girls who were shy and semi uncertain. They were just unbelievably great with everyone. Seemed genuinely interested in not only the guiding but also the area, history and ecology. After this we're already planning next summers multi day adventure. These guys make the rafting what it is. I mean the river speaks for itself...and it is undeniably wild, beautiful and raw, but the guides keep you coming back for more. I was wet the whole trip. Even had a moment with the check in chick at the front desk afterward where we had an understanding of just how awesome the guides are. Thanks so much for making our little vacation unforgettable:) Maison sure knows how to floss:)
